WAXHAW – The Waxhaw Lions Club partnered with Indian Land High School students and PTSO members to collect two used hearing aids and 75 pairs of eyeglasses, as well as sort hundreds of previously collected pairs of eyeglasses.
The glasses were collected in donation boxes placed at Dance U in Fort Mill, Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt in Indian Land and the school office starting in September.
On Nov. 6, 10 adults and 15 students of the Exceptional Student program traveled to Camp Dogwood to sort the glasses. Owned and operated by the North Carolina Lions, Camp Dogwood is designed for the enjoyment of vision-impaired persons so they can participate safely in fun summer activities, such as boating, fishing, swimming and yard games.
PTSO President Pam Hogue and Beth Brown, of the ILHS Exceptional Student program, partnered with Waxhaw Lion Susan O’Brien on the project.
